    Your life is right now! It's not later! It's not in that time of retirement. It's not when the lover gets here. It's not when you've moved into the new house. It's not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it's not ever going to get better than right now--until it gets better right now!

Edit this entry.

Another Bearded Woman

Amazing was for me to hear, that Harnaam is working as a primary school teacher, or teaching assistant (well the media….everywhere different not knowing what is really true!). I think in the UK this is possible, as the idea in this country is to avoid exclusion and to be open for the differences in people. Whereas in Germany I think it would be quite impossible to work in a school as a bearded woman. Well I might be wrong and things are already changing. But when I was living in Germany they made a documentary about me in which I was looking for a job. We went with the camera to an agency who should find a job for me. The man in charge said well he did find employes that wanted to give me a job because of my CV, but when he mentioned the beard they said no way, the parents of the children would not want this and he was afraid of any problems that could arise from me having a beard.

I think in the UK people have been trained in politeness, open-mindedness, and integration of all kinds of people into the community, so there is a possibility for a woman with a beard to be working as a teacher.

In Germany I don´t know, I guess it is due to the history, and the mentality that comes from this, to be afraid of people that are different and therefore a lack of ability to integrate them into the society. In bigger cities such as Berlin or Hamburg it is more likely but in other parts of Germany there is still a narrow mindedness.

I like that in the past years there are more and more women coming out and showing themselves with a beard.

It is about accepting ourselves and living beyond concepts of how you have to look and to behave.

This gives me hope that one day women with beards and women without will just be the normal picture in society and noone will doubt that it is possible that women have beards, as it was when I grew up.

Documentary about people living in caves: No place on earth

I just watched the german american documentary “No place on earth” which they did show on german TV. It is an interesting documentary about Jews during WWI hiding in a cave under the earth for more than 500 days! 500 days without any daylight, for most of them, well some men had to go up and find food, but the women never got out or the children! And I was imagining how that is, not seeing the green of the plants or the sunlight the colors and how amazing it must be then after this time to be back out there in this brightness and wonder! I think you would get a feeling of wonder and would appreciate everything very much, the food as well, which was very short then.

I did like the film. Some of the survivors are being interviewed in the documentary and visit one more time the caves together with some of their grandchildren. Amazing to see.

Here is a trailer followed by an interview with Janet Tobias the director of the documentary and Judy Gelman Myers on Shalom TV where they speak about making the film:

Talkshow about women that have “male” features

I had been invited to give an interview in a talkshow in the Ukraine. It was great visiting Kiev a wonderful city, that has a special atmosphere for me, somehow felt like coming back to an old ancient mother, a very deep feeling. Later I read, that Kiev was called “Mother Russia”.

I asked my family if there had been any connections with Kiev in the family. My aunt told me, that some of our ancestors once had a stagecoach going between Kiev and some place in todays Poland! Amazing! So many things that I did not know about the ancestors. I believe we feel this connection with a place and the family, when we visit places where some of our ancestors had been living or visiting and that had been important to them somehow.

At this moment people in Kiev are having lots of political fights in the street and I feel sorry, hoping for them to find a peaceful and good solution.

Here is the video of the show, it is in russian,  you can still hear my answers in english,….the show was interesting as there had been invited very different women, some that had trained their muscles, were lesbians, or had a deep voice, or me having a beard. I could follow the talkshow, as I had a little thing in my ear and a translater, who was really doing so well to translate the whole show for me simultaniously! Thanks to him I say here, as I did not have the chance to tell him personally after the show.

One thing really astonished me, that many in the audience had a difficulty to accept that women train their muscles. They said women should be women and men should be men and that a man is strong and a woman is the one that needs the strong man. Well this is one model, that might have been valid for some centuries. On the other hand, there had always been strong women, that were for example living a farmlife and really doing things like they would say are for men. I hope it will be possible to open up the minds of people in order to understand, that there is a great variety of humans in this world and that we do not have to make us fit into a model that the fearful mind of humans created in order to have a system that might take away fears.

Thank you to everyone who made it possible for me to come to Kiev and participate in the talkshow!
